Stress is restoring force developed in the body due to any tensile, compressive or any other force per unit area and on the other hand pressure is force applied on a body per unit area.

Answered by: swadhapriya ghosh on: Sep 2nd, 2014

Stress is worked in solid metal or means of any m/c,. but pressure works in fluid mechanics.

Answered by: kamlesh431 on: Jul 24th, 2014

When we applied load per unit area that is pressure And internal resistance (i.e. reaction due to applied force) per unit area is Stress.

It means pressure is due to externally applied force and stress is due to internal reaction(that will be a force) due to that applied force.

It means If a nut have M10 size then we will use that wrench which have 10 on their arm.

But M10 means internal dia. of nut is 10 mm, its outer portion that is hexagonal not 10 mm.

Calculating heat transfer through a cylinder

Asked By: sdoustdar | Asked On: Jul 2nd, 2014

How do you calculate the heat transfer thorough a cylinder with lower temperature on the bottom than on the top. The temperature of the ambient is 20 deg c, inside is 77 deg k, the bottom disk is 5 deg c. What would be the temp on the top?

Answered by: Akshay Kulkarni on: Aug 4th, 2014

No formula at all.

Hint : Considering the effect of pressure difference with density, for a cylinder, it is not possible to have low temp. at the bottom part than at the topmost part.

So, the question asked here to check the basic knowledge about the fluid properties.

When petrol is used in diesel engine, the engine will not work as gasoline (petrol) has high ignition temperature and therefore has to be ignited by spark-ignition. Diesel engine on the other hand works on the principal of self-ignition in compressed fuel which is not possible with petrol.

When diesel is used in petrol engine, there will be sudden combustion in the fuel due to spark ignition  bcoz diesel has low ignition temperature. This will lead to high knocking, which is absolutely undesirable.

Answered by: kamlesh431 on: Jul 24th, 2014

The compression ratio of petrol engine is 10:1 to 14:1 and for diesel engine is 16:1 to 22:1. If petrol is poured in diesel engine a blast may happen at this high compression ratio. So we cant use pe...
